Pressure surges can occur in fire protection systems as the result of sudden velocity or flow direction changes such as the quick opening or closing of a valve or the sudden starting or shutting down of a pump.

Such water surge/water hammer events can cause significant damage to piping and accessories and this needs to be taken into account during the design, implementation and operations of these systems. In our next webinar, we’ll be explaining how to identify potential surges and how to use innovative methods and technologies to prevent or reduce them in pump and valve operations.
